Abstract Principles of Low Impact Development (LID): EISA, Section 438 and other Army guidance promotes LID approaches over more traditional approaches for stormwater management. Manage stormwater close to where precipitation lands. Maintain or restore pre-development hydrology, reduce runoff volume and peak runoff rates and reduce potential transport of pollutants to receiving waters. Widely proven in nonmilitary applications. One limit to mass Army adoption has been lack of demonstrations while combating a perception of increased costs. Low Impact Development principles in a nutshell: Conservation, Small-scale controls, Directing runoff to natural areas, customized site design and maintenance, pollution, prevention and education.
